Petanque in Harvard

Last Saturday the walkways in front of Harvard Medical School were once again the scene of the annual petanque tournament organized by Nico & Jeff.
Philippe, Matt & Francois from Le Mistral Club came out the big winners this time.
But everyone had fun, a couple of brand new players did extremely well, and the teams - some with funny team names like "Les Bouleversantes", "Pétanque Warriors" & "Les Tontons" - are determined to start training for the next edition.

How appropriate: Gordon Hall was built in 1904, three 3 years before petanque was born.
By the way, looking at these pics: who was it again who said petanque is a game for old folks..? ;-)
